    Robert Louis Stevenson State Park

    Named for the Treasure Island author who spent time locally, this is a serious place for hiking. It’s worth the effort to enjoy views from the summit of 4,343-foot Mount Saint Helena.

    Schramsberg Vineyards

    Set at an historic 19th-century estate, Schramsberg ranks among California’s finest producers of Méthode Champenoise sparkling wine. Vintner Hugh Davies honors the trail paved by his parents, Jack and Jamie, who aimed for the stars when they restored this property in 1965.

    Brasswood Bar + Bakery + Kitchen

    Gourmet comfort food comes with an Italian accent with dishes like papardelle with short-rib sugo and herb-crusted lamb chops. It also offers complimentary corkage, which is a good excuse to stop by the Bottle Shop first.
